Paw Prints The Daily Roundup

Can we please do something with whomever is doing the scheduling for the UConn Huskies men’s and women’s basketball teams. Once again the fans are forced to choose although this time we’ll be able to watch a half of the women’s game against Georgetown on Saturday that starts at 3 PM. The men tip-off at 4 PM against Providence with a chance to take the No. 1 spot in the land with a win. I guess the DVR is always an option.

Matt Stout of the Norwich Bulletin, Mike Anthony of the Hartford Courant, Neill Ostrout of the Connecticut Post and David Borges of the New Haven Register all have notes on the UConn men’s basketball team and/or the Big East men’s coaches conference call.
